With a number of match-winners at their disposal, Rajasthan Royals will lock horns with a new and refurbished Sunrisers Hyderabad. Both the sides will start their campaign in Pune in an IPL clash on Tuesday.
Rajasthan Royals had a very busy mega auctions and their batting will rotate around captain Sanju Samson as well as Jos Buttler. In the auctions, they also lapped up young Indian players Devdutt Padikkal who can be a match-winner on his day.
Royals have also snapped up power-hitters in Shimron Hetmyer, Rassie Van der Dussen, Jimmy Neesham and Riyan Parag in the middle order and this should give them a lot of depth.
As far as the bowling is concerned, Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal will form a potent spinning combination. They will also be complimented with the likes of Prasidh Krishna, Trent Boult taking up the mantle with the new ball.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, will need all the experience of captain Kane Williamson who is the best batter in the side. Apart from him, his compatriot Glenn Phillips could well slot at the top of the batting order. There are also Nicholas Pooran, Priyam Garg and Rahul Tripathi who could take up the responsibility in the middle order. Abdul Samad, who was retained ahead of the mega auctions, can take up the role in the middle order.
The bowling attack will be led by pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar and he will be given company by Umran Malik. They have also added Marco Jansen, who has been quite good for South Africa over the last six months.
Washington Sundar, is making a comeback along with T Natarajan and as far as the spinners are concerned, they have options in Shreyas Gopal or J Suchith.
